Sony K810 and K550

Sony-Ericsson today revealed its lineup of phones for next week's 3GSM conference in Barcelona, including two cameraphones in the Cyber-shot line. The pictured K810 is an upgrade to the current K790/K800 that brings UMTS mobile broadband to the previously EDGE-only design, allowing photo bloggers to upload images from the 3.2-megapixel camera at a quicker rate, according to the company. Shortcuts to advanced camera settings and an automatic photo correction tool also help with photography. Sony-Ericsson plans to ship the tri-band GSM phone first to Europe in the Spring in blue and ivory colors; a China-only version known as the K818c will ship without 3G wireless support at the same time.

Click through for details of the US-bound K550, as well as photos of both models.



The K550 (below) is the Japanese/Swedish partnership's new mid-range cameraphone for the world. A more modest 2-megapixel camera is bolstered by rapid access to photo mode, which is triggered instantly by opening the camera cover on the back. It also has PictBridge support for sending photos directly to a printer, bypassing a PC. Unlike the K810, the quad-band K550 is intended for both US and international users and should arrive sooner, shipping this quarter in black and white models.
